Looking at the various items listed in TripAdvisor's "To Do" list for Washington, DC, I recently learned that the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle is a tourist spot in the city and is currently ranked at #55 by Tripadvisor Reviewers.
I felt compelled to visit this Cathedral since this is where I got married and to see any changes that had been done since that time. I also wanted to take and add pictures of the Cathedral, (particularly those taken outside) in this review so Tripadvisor readers would be encouraged to visit it.
The Cathedral is as beautiful as I remembered it. Mosaic, colorful "pictures" of St. Matthews and the other apostles are depicted at the walls and ceilings near the Altar. There are 2 chapels located at the right side of the Cathedral: the Wedding Chapel (my wedding venue) and the one devoted to St. Francis. The latter has beautiful frescoes and his famous statements carved on the walls. Located between these 2 chapels is the big organ.
Tips: Go visit this Cathedral when you're in Washington, DC. Take the Metro and exit either at the Farragut North Station, Farragut West Station, or the Dupont Circle Station. It is about 5-10 minute walk from these stations. The Cathedral is located on Rhode Island Avenue (between L and M Streets), with Connecticut Avenue as the main thoroughfare.
Note that everyone is welcome at the Cathedral, regardless of your religious affiliations!
